Only one.

My NFL collection is structured the same way, but I finished setting all the images up before moving to the beta and they still work.

Honestly have no idea but I think I can some what recreate the issue issue with a series spread across multiple drives the season image appears to have to be in a specific folder/location.  My guess would be images need to be within the first season folder of the first drive the season is seen on.  

 

 

Library TV Shows - Multiple disk

Assigned folders

  Disk 1

  Disk 2

  Disk 3

  Disk 4

Disabled all image downloading

 

 

        Disk 1

           Series A - Series poster

             Season 1 - Season poster

             Season 2

        Disk 2

           Series A

             Season 1

             Season 2 - Season poster

        Disk 3

           Series A

             Season 3 - Season poster

             Season 4

        Disk 4

           Series A

             Season 3

             Season 4 - Season poster

 

Season images appear for season 1 and 3, season 2 uses series image and season 4 has no season image.

 

@Luke Does this make since?

 

4.2.1.0 and 4.3.0.15 acted the same.

It was working for me on the last stable.

 

One thing I did find on the stable though was that there had to be at least one episode in the folder that contained the poster, so I couldn't keep all my posters on one drive regardless of where episodes were. I also had to put the series poster, background and logo on all drives. Season posters did work from any drive though, as long as there was also at least one episode there.

I left that out but there are 6 or 7 episodes in each the season folders.  I guess as another note i manually placed all images in the folders.  I can test applying them via the UI but am almost certain it would work properly.

Putting a "poster.jpg" in the season folder is how I've been doing it anyway, I haven't been using the UI.

I have The Simpsons S01-S11 and when i it "shuffle" 90% of the time it will launch the same episodes in the same exact order.

this thread turned out to be more about shuffle problems on split up seasons across drives

The issue at the moment is getting the season posters to show up, rather than the shuffling.

@Happy2Play were you able to reproduce the season poster image issue?

Ok yes that's not a new thing. It's something we can look at in a future update. Thanks.

If it's not new why did it work previously?

Looking at happy2play's example, it happens when you have two folders for a given season, and only one of the folders has a season poster.

 

Workaround until we're able to look at this - give both season posters an image.
